Please note: Ortofon Verso MM cartridges are EXCLUSIVELY designed for listeners using vintage Thorens tonearms and turntables. They feature a bottom-style mount to accommodate older Thorens arms requiring such a design. If you own any other turntable, purchase the regular Ortofon 2M Series.
Some of the greatest recordings in music continue to be reissued in their original mono mixes. Do them justice with Ortofon's 2M Mono phono cartridge.
With an improved engine providing extremely accurate playback, 2M Mono
digs deep into the grooves, pulling out music you've never heard before.
The 2M Mono is built with a 18µm Nude Spherical stylus for a supremely balanced, thoroughly enjoyable sound.
The 2M Series of cartridges is designed for precise and accurate retrieval of the information in the record groove. Ortofon's philosophy is to play the record as accurately as possible, without coloring the sound. The 2M series of cartridges feature Ortofon's
trademark split pole pins, an invention that enables moving magnet
cartridges to have a flat frequency response, as with a moving coil
cartridge. Split pole pins were originally presented in the 500 series
and Super OM series.
Ortofon has optimized the 2M design for ease of mounting the
cartridge, weight and size to fit the most common turntables at the
market today. The 2M Series provides excellent compatibility in an
assortment of playback systems and with a wide variety of phono preamps.
Verso cartridges mount to Thorens arms that require mounting from below. Simply pull off the Verso 2M stylus (the colored part of the cartridge) to expose the main cartridge chassis. You’ll then see studs that you will screw into the headshell. Once the cartridge is mounted on the headshell, the stylus slides back in and the cartridge is ready to go.
